Not an AM but its a HT anyway...
Here's my Hardrock
I don't know if it is really considered All-Mountain, but I ride it damn near everywhere and have fun doing it. The Float 120 RL was by far my biggest splurge, but I got a good deal on Ebay and I made about $70 back on the old MZIII.
Medium '06 Specialized Hardrock Pro Disc
XR 3D (60mm x 12 deg)
2x9 SRAM drivetrain
Soon to have:
Rampage 2.35 front/Rampage or Small Block Eight 2.35 rear
I'll probably replace the BB, hubs, and headset with nicer items as they wear out.
I think it weighs about 29 lbs now, even with the thudbuster-I still have the hard seat post, but it is only a couple of ounces lighter.
I put this together with spare parts I had lying around. The only things I had to buy were the bar, the rims, and the spokes.
FRAME: 2006 Norco Manik
FORK: Marzocchi 66VF
WHEELS: KK front hub, Formula rear hub, Mavic EX721 rims, DT Swiss 2.0 spokes
BRAKES: Hayes 9, 8" front, 6" rear
BAR: Kona DH Riser
STEM: Specialized Mobius
GRIPS: Axiom Tattoo
SHIFTER: X-9 (Deore in the picture)
REAR DERAILLEUR: X-9 (Deore in the picture)
CHAIN: Shimano HG53
CASSETTE: Shimano LX
CRANKSET: Raceface Evolve DH with MEC bashguard, 32T chainring, and a Dirty guide
BB: Shimano XT external
PEDALS: Wellgo platforms
TIRES: WTB Weirwolf 2.55LT (Noxian NBX 2.3 front and Specialized Roll-X 2.0 rear in picture)
SADDLE: WTB Rocket V

Saint Cranks with DRS (later replaced with LG1)
I already ordered a new frame which will host most of the components on the bike. The fork was always too long, works for downhill, but makes the front end wander... I think I'll make a fully rigid SS out of this.
Love my HT
I just got my 06 IH Bakuto and I like it. Took it up to Gooseberry for a test ride last weekend and it passed with flying colors. Will post pics soon>>>
